Let’s be honest. A break from posting on social media, this blog and YouTube was highly needed. I don’t know where to begin with why it was so needed. Let’s just say life, people, creating content, the statistics of Instagram, followers etc. It all started to be little bit too much for me. That’s why I stopped posting pretty much everywhere. I’ve wanted to change the way this blog looks, without having the stress of posting content straight away. I’ve wanted to play around with plugins, fonts, layouts, try different ways of how I can make this space personal as well as user friendly. I am hopping I’ve achieved that.
From now on I will try by best to stick to the regular content publishing and not just creating. As you may know, about over a month ago most of my content was stolen from me. Part of it was it my fault. Kids don’t back up your entire video and photo content on a pen-drive that can be stolen or lost. I guess the lesson is learned, for me at least. During this one month of me not posting I stopped caring little bit about how many followers, likes, comments I’m gaining or losing. It’s not about that. Social media is called social media so we could be social. Sure posting about your latest vacation and new pair of shoes is all fun and dandy but I feel like so many of us lose the real meaning of why we take photos and share them. It’s to create and keep memories. But most impartiality is to share it with other people.
I can’t stress enough why and how blogging as impacted me personally in so many different way, both negative and positive. Sometimes I feel like blogging brings the worst of me. The obsessive, insecure little girl who just wants to be validated by the number of views, followers or likes underneath the photos. No matter how many times I may lie to myself, or others that I could care less about all it I do. However I also love the creating process, from picking up outfits, to make up, hair, filming, editing shooting, writing. All of it. I love it. That’s why I blog. But sometimes with the way we ourselves, brands, PR’s, general public sees us bloggers/content creators, we are seen as a 24/7 promotion machine. We compete against either other. And for what? A new pair of shoes. Please count me out. I hate how in some ways blogging became about that. Thought the last couple of months I started to really see and appreciate what blogging as really gave me. Support system. I am supported by the most amazing group of people. When I took that break lot’s of them started to ask and see if I was ok. And that made my cold heart little bit warmer. But more on that later. I love how blogging connects people with similar passions all over the world, the beauty of internet is that, the connection and self expression.
Also can we please appreciate the amazing logo and icon that Witchcrafts created? Not to be big headed but I love it so much.I hope you do to.
I’m excited to be back. To hopefully share more and be bit less stressed about it. Blogging meant to be fun. I’ll try to make it fun again.
I’ll speak to you soon.
Let’s be friends ^_^
